- The UAW ordered its membership to strike General Motors on Sunday night after contract negotiations broke down.
- GM’s 46,000 UAW-represented workers could take to the picket lines.
- The UAW has been bristling for a strike since early 2019, when GM “unallocated” several US factories, including its Lordstown facility in Ohio.
- President Donald Trump, who won Ohio in 2016, has been agitating for GM to sell or reopen that plant.
- The 2007 strike against GM lasted just a few days; it’s uncertain how long this new action will hold up.
